Play tennis on holiday

Whether you want a gentle knock up, a social game or feel it's time to improve your strokes, you'll find our facilities and our resident LTA accredited coaching staff are outstanding. With over 20 tennis courts spread across our beach resorts in Greece, Sardinia and Corsica there is plenty of free use of courts and we provide free loan of the latest HEAD racquets and balls for coaching and casual play.

If you are looking to advance your game or just starting out, then we have a number of LTA approved coaching programmes to choose from, including our popular intensive tennis weeks, our signature academy course or group coaching tailored to ability. We are keen to encourage the next generation too, so there's plenty of mini and junior coaching for our younger players from age 3 years upwards.

 

Tennis tuition courses

Why not  sign up to one of our tennis courses available throughout the summer? Whether you are a complete beginner or an accomplished club player, we have tuition and courses to suit. Choose from a LTA approved group coaching programme which offers 4 hours of tuition throughout the week or the more intensive academy course (at Lakitira, Helona and Levante Beach Resorts in Greece), ideal for players wanting to improve every aspect of their game.

Private tuition to truly perfect your game

Alternatively you might prefer private one-on-one tuition, with one of the resident LTA accredited coaches to really get the most out of your session. And, tennis coaching is not just for adults.  We run LTA children's tennis courses for age 3 years upwards.

We take children's tennis just as seriously as we do the adults. Our courses for younger players are all about fun, encouragement and learning new skills. Sessions are made up of small groups, split accordingly to age and ability.

We have over 80 adult tennis HEAD YouTek IG Challenge MP racquets with various grip sizes (2,3,4) across our resorts and over 150 junior racquets in 3 sizes to suit all levels (21,23,25). We take our tennis seriously and with over 1000 HEAD Championship Balls, 8000 metres of string, 2500 metres of grip and 750 vibration dampeners used each summer season – we are fully prepared to make you tennis holiday a great one.
New for summer 2016 - For those keen to really drill down into their shot selection, we now have Sony Sensors on hand at our Greek resorts so guests and coaches can analyse everything from the speed of a service to the ball positioning on the racquet.

Beginner Tennis

 

Tennis holidays for beginners

We welcome all ability levels to hit the court with us. We particularly like it when guests new to the sport get involved and have some fun.
Using the LTA's Tennis Xpress programme we are able to offer beginners a fun yet structured way of getting a taste for this fantasic social game. Designed as a nine-hour course over six weeks originally, Tennis Xpress is centred on the use of modified equipment such as slower bouncing green and orange balls to ensure that players quickly learn the game of tennis; being able to serve, rally and score by the end of the course.

Tennis levels

What level of tennis are you?

On our tennis holidays we want to make sure that everyone is comfortable with the level of tennis they are playing and the people they are playing with. That's why we ask our guests to give us a rough guide as to what level they are, especially when booking our group, academy and intensive tennis weeks. Please find our levels below.


1. I have never played tennis and have little or no racquet sport experience.

2. I have played some tennis without instruction. I would like to learn the strokes and start to serve.

3. I used to play regular tennis but am rusty. I need to update my game and get back into tennis with drills and match play.

4. I can rally at slow pace and would like to increase consistency with my ground strokes, serve and hold my own when playing matches.

5. I am fairly comfortable all round, have a reasonable serve but would like to learn how to apply slice and topspin to my ground strokes/serves.

6. I play regularly and can rally consistently giving and receiving spins. I can direct my serve to either side of the service box.

7. I have a strong game and reasonably solid ground strokes & I enjoy playing at the net. My first serve is quite good but need to develop a second serve with more topspin/slice.

8. I play at a good club level & have an all round game. I understand match tactics and enter leagues and play team matches.

Here what one tennis club had to say about our tennis holidays

'This was our 2nd visit to this resort which ticks all the boxes for us as a group of ladies from a tennis club. We were particularly impressed with the changes that had been made year because many were suggested by us last year. Must mention Sue (the manager) & Raffa and his tennis team who give Mark Warner the edge on any other company that do these type of holidays.'
